1.961 - Lecture 3 – Diffusion around a sphere

1.961 Life at low Reynolds numbers

Diffusion-limited uptake: nutrient flux to a sphere
When does nutrient uptake occur only by diffusion: The Peclet number
Diffusion vs. locomotion: how do you escape from your boundary layer?
Diffusion and metabolism: limits to size
Following the scent: concentration and gradient around a sphere
Other shapes: peanuts, M&M’s, disks
